Robert Morris University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
I began my time at Robert Morris as a transfer student. From the very beginning the staff and advisers were very helpful in getting me set up in the classes that I needed to complete my education. I was able to successfully move through my classes with many opportunities to learn in the classroom and the field. I was able to be involved with many clubs and organizations. The relationships I formed and the information that i learned eventually lead me to the job that i currently hold. It is in my field of study and I began here just 3 months after graduating. Robert Morris was an extremely positive experience for me.
RMU was a great school anesthetically. It had a beautiful campus, always had activities going on whether it was a sporting event or a fundraising bake sale. The student body was less than desirable unless you lived on campus. A frequent complaint was the divide between commuters and residents, then residents and Greek life. The staff was also split, good and bad, in my personal opinion. I had some great professors who cared; I had some professors who could care if you were to succeed or not. The scheduling staff is horrible. I scheduled the majority of my classes myself. There are many places to hang out on campus and the food is actually fairly decent (while the price is not). Overall, I recommend RMU if you just want to go to class and not be bothered with and somewhat find yourself in the solitude, otherwise be prepared to find yourself labeled a snot, slut, or jock so you can fit in and get a pricey degree.
Great school for what it offers. I wish it had more extracurricular science-based activities to pad my resume out of college, but that's up to the student to look for.
It was great to get a 4 year degree in 3 years. We only had 1 week off for summer break, but it was nice to be done while my friends still had another year to go. I also liked that I didn't have to schedule my own classes. It was quick and efficient.
My college experience was very rewarding because I learned a lot and I met some great people in the process. The teachers were very helpful and the curriculum was designed for success. I enjoyed the environment and learned a great deal.
If I chose to go back to school I would choose a different area of study. The accounting field which I am in currently has a lot of stress and it is very easy to burn yourself out like I did. I would choose a profession based on overall satisfaction and happiness as opposed to what can earn me the most money.
